District 17 Forum May 23rd 2019
District 17 Forum – May 23rd 2019
Dear Neighbors -
Many of you attended the first District 17 forum in September of 2016. We have a new mayor, many developments in the city and some challenges for both the city and our neighborhoods, and I would like to invite you to another District 17 forum on Thursday, May 23, beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the Redwood Ballroom at Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel, 3841 E. Washington Avenue.
Officials and community members will make brief presentations. We will have time for residents to discuss concerns at their tables, visit resource tables, all of which will inform my work as your alder. I hope to see you there. You can also always contact me at District17@cityofmadison.com and sign up for my blog at http://www.cityofmadison.com/council/district17
